I've probably already said this at some point, but 'gangsta' and 'underground' are not contrastive terms: much of underground rap IS gangsta rap, and much of gansta rap is most definitely underground. Hence, the comparison is stupid beyond words.

Actually I'd go so far as to say that underground rap is almost exclusively 'gansta' at least in some sense or other. Those UG acts that are not gangsta are really the exception to the rule.

The question in that case is basically "what's better, rap or rap?"
